Custom sprites, old tiles, new twists! A set truly made to be something I'd like to see. Coming "When it's Done™"!
Link's been going Octorok hunting, one Octorok left.
Hmm... Haven't I seen that thing somewhere before..?
Looky, Adventures of Link! GO LINK!!!
Well, that's the end of it. Enjoy, and have fun!

Nice tiles here, and good colors, although a bit more overall detail could have been added here. I think I shall vote for this shot nonetheless, because it is simply the most visually appealing. Well done!
The trees in my opinion are too grid-like. Have you ever seen something in nature that looks like that? And also the types of trees you use are a bit odd... But don't take me to harshly. This is an okay shot, and I commend you on your effort.
I have no idea how you're going to pull that "custom" boss off, but it looks like it will be a lot of fun to battle. I wish the room itself had a bit more variety to it, though. (I understand the problems with textured floors with a custom boss, but more wall detail would have been welcomed. .) nice job getting that boss into ZC, though.
You know, I was close to voting for this shot, but then I realized it's not difficult to rip AOL tiles, especially at three colors each. It looks identical to the real game, though.
Man, I wish I had entered last week's shot into this one instead. Oh well.

Dart's is nice, but he needs an alternate grass tile...that looks a bit repetitive.
Jake's is a bit gridlike and has an OOS snow tree recolored green. It looks kinda weird.
Tobias shot is also good, but what is with the things on the south walls?! o_O And...it uses Pure tiles. No, I'm just kidding about that last statement...
So why did I vote for Hero Link? The world may never know.

OMG, I have a vote The boss is fairly complex, but it is possible if all works as planned. I know what you mean about the screen lacking detail. I may change those AlttP floor tiles to some custom ones with some more variation, but this battle will become a huge fan of full screen warps so more floor details mean more double tiles for warps... Plus I want to avoid clutter. I was hesitant about putting those things on the southern wall.
Also, this is the level six boss from AlttP; Vitrious. I ripped it from Orion's AlttP set, but I did edit the colors, and I did "create" the smaller eye's new arangement.
This post just feels wierd...
As far as my vote goes, I nulled of course, but I do like HL's (because AoL is cool like that) and Dart Zaider reminds me of DoR
Jake's is nice too.
Good job people...

The caption is supposed to read "When It's Done™". You too can type that symbol by holding ALT and entering 0153 on the number pad before letting go. Try it!
The status graphics from Gashin are used with permission. Those hearts are a custom job; I liked the ones from HF, but since he didn't want to release them, I came up with something new. I actually like these better.
The trees are different. I asked Radien, and he took the original Minish Cap tree, shrank it, and converted it to the DoR palette, after which adding them to my original Miniaturized LttP Tree tiles. You'll be seeing them in the DoR set.
As for the rest of this week's crop, I have to agree that the overall showing is more on the experimental side. It's more about what's on display than the amount of polish. For example, Tobias spelled "Vitreous" wrong.

About my shot now. It was just something I put together from a tileset I'd like to use sometime soon, even though it's AoL. I didn't design it to be fancy, or awesome. Just seeing if I still had some design skills.

Dammit. I knew it didn't look quite right. Thanks for pointing this out.
I can't believe I'm actually doing well here... Vitreous is my second favorite AlttP boss (The first being Trinnex, level 7). I want to recreate the battle as accuratly as possible, so you will have to wait untill the expo
Keep in mind that ZC has it's limmets.
Thanks to all of those who liked my shot

The tiles look nicely ripped and colored. And I don't recall seeing that boss in zquest before.
